Group accommodation (max 11 guests) in iconic Derby location close to trailhead: stay at the lovingly refurbished Cascade Cottage property for a memorable MTB holiday. Enjoy forest views from your private garden and decks, stay in walking distance to Main Street.
Cascade Cottage is one of the original cottages in the historic mining town of Derby. The Cottage has been lovingly refurbished and fitted out for a biking holiday. It is conveniently located on Cascade Dam Road that leads up to the Black Stump network, close to the Trailhead and easy walk to Main Street bike shops and cafes.
Cascade Cottage now has 3 buildings and sleeps up to 11 guests. It is ideal for shared use by 2-3 families or larger groups who like to balance time for socialising with personal time away from the group.
